Beta Marine Ltd (UK) was formed in 1987 by four marine engineers who brought to the company a combined total of over 70 years experience in the design, manufacture and marketing of marine diesels. Their objective was to provide propulsion engines and marine generating sets to suit individual requirements rather than to the specification dictated by the larger boat builders. This special applications expertise rapidly gained the company market share and linked with sensible pricing the company is now a major equipment supplier to the international yacht, work boat, and canal boat markets. Beta has now supplied over 25,000 diesels and with a turnover of £8m and with 38 employees this profitable company continues to grow with satisfied customers acting as excellent ambassadors for the business.

Beta Marine

Since 1987 Beta Marine Ltd (UK) has developed an enviable reputation for providing quiet and smooth running marine diesels to suit a wide range of applications at very competitive prices. We are able to tailor the engine to your boat with different mounting options such as the direct repower for Atomic-4 (A4). We can offer different propulsion options ranging from transmissions and saildrives (SD).

More from Beta Marine (UK)

Beta Marine (US) was started in 1997 by Stanley Feigenbaum and Richard Gerard and we have been enjoying a great relationship with our customers and Beta Marine (UK) since then.

2012 is a banner year for us as this is the fifteenth year that we have distributed the Beta Marine superb propulsion engines in the USA. 2012 is also a banner for Beta Marine in England as this is their 25th anniversary. Both companies have grown and Beta Marine now has distributors in more than 50 countries around the world. We pride ourselves on good customer service and having great products. Do your research and ask around, check in the forums. We are not the biggest in the business, just the best.

It is engineered to be serviced easily!

It is engineered to be serviced easily!

Our engines are all engineered for ease of service and the use of the reliable Kubota diesels and Johnson or Jabsco raw water pumps ensures that service items such as filters and impellers are readily available. In fact, we appear to have a higher percentage of our engines actually cruising and being used instead of sitting on the dock. Our heavy duty cooling systems are extremely easy to service and we also supply our heat exchangers to some reputable generator manufacturers.

We keep all service parts in stock and can often ship out on the same day as the order from our facility in Eastern North Carolina. Our dealer network is growing and many of our dealers carry all service and repair parts in stock.

Our operations have expanded and we now assemble marine generators in the USA. These are of interest for anyone who wants a reliable and simple genset. Since our generators run at 1800 RPM, they are much quieter than the lighter weight 3600 RPM competition. In most instances, this allows them to be used without sound shields which makes servicing easier.

We are the ones that other companies are copying.  Our early model heat exchanger design has been blatantly stolen by one small manufacturer.  Our user friendly engine layout is being copied by some other engine manufacturers.  Beta Marine will remain the innovator of high quality, user friendly and reliable marine diesel engines and generators.

Beta Marine Northwest.
About five years ago, we needed a new diesel to replace an old Volvo MD in our Cheoy Lee. After searching the various manufacturers, it became clear to us that the Beta Marine diesel based on the proven Kubota engine was by far the best choice. We ordered one, installed it and sea-trialed it. The experience was outstanding. We liked the engine and the company so much, we became a dealer.

We are located in the Pacific Northwest, and serve customers throughout the US and Canada. We offer our customers an extensive line of reliable, easy to maintain, and cost effective diesel engines and generators. We have many years of sailing and boating experience, and use Beta Marine engines in our own boats.

We keep a stock of parts to serve our local customers. All orders are shipped to you factory direct, so you are assured of getting a brand new engine with the latest equipment, configured to meet your exact requirements.

We only sell Beta Marine diesel products, and we know our product line well. Using this knowledge, we endeavor to deliver the highest levels of customer service – working to understand your application and providing a solution that best fits your needs.

Our customers are all over the world. If you need help with installation, we have installation partners we can recommend in Seattle, Anacortes, Port Townsend, Kingston, Polsbo, Bellingham, Tacoma, Bremerton, Gig Harbor, WA, Oregon, Alaska.

Let us know how we can help you.

Trader      Fordson

Ford Motor Company Ltd manufactured 4 & 6 cylinder diesel engines to fit primarily into their Thames Lorries (like the one above left). The 4 cylinder diesel engines also fit into their Fordson tractors (above right). Some of these engines were also fitted into rock crushers, harvesters, and other equipment by various manufactures around the world. According to FoleyEngines TechTip#142, the Dagenham engines were built in Ford of Britain’s engine plant in Dagenham, a suburb east of London. and the Dorset (¿and later?) engines were produced just east of Dagenham at Ford’s plant in Essex (¿which later became the  Basildon Case-New Holland (CNH) tractor plant?)

Ford Dagenham, London, UK

Ford’s Dagenham Plant, near London, UK

Ford themselves did not produce a marine version of their engines until the Dover Series, however many Ford of Britain engines and a number of Ford licensed Spanish (EBRO) and Turkish (Ford Otosan) versions of these engines were marinised by third party companies or by individuals, and installed in various vessels, especially Asian Trawlers. Most all of these engines were factory new, but there were also a few used engines that had been taken out of trucks, tractors, harvesters, etc. and marinised.

    In 1981, Bob Smith, who was the former managing director of Lehman Power, founded American Diesel Corp in Kilmarnock, VA to provide aftermarket marinizing replacement parts and support for Lehman marinized Ford Industrial Power (UK) diesel engines. They also produced their own marinized replacement engine packages from the last of the Non-EPA Ford 6.22L (Ford Otosan) engines similar to the Ford-Lehman Super 135’s. They were first rated at 125 hp and then later at 140 hp. American Diesel Corp can supply most of the parts required to accomplish the “Fixes” listed at Lehman Mfg Co that need to be accomplished to prevent engine damage. The americandieselcorp.com website has recently been updated with new features including Parts Lists, Parts Order Form, and Contact Form.

    What our nonprofit Anchors Aweigh Academy and its
    EverythingAboutBoats.org website have accomplished so far.

    • Published over 300 website main topic webpages, many with full articles on the topic. See our Website Contents in the Right Sidebar for the listing of the main topic pages.
    • Published over 9,000 marine vendor webpages, all with their contact information, most with a description of their products and services, many with product documentation, specifications and independent reviews. (Includes: Boat designers, boat building tools, material and equipment manufacturers and suppliers, boat builders and dealers, yacht brokers, marine surveyors, boat insurers, boat transporters, skippers and crews, boatyards and marinas, yacht clubs, boat rentals and yacht charters, boating, seamanship and maritime schools, marine law attorneys and expert witnesses, boat refitters and repairers, book authors and publishers, and video producers)
    • Acquired over 120,000 pages of product documentation including Catalogs, Brochures, SpecSheets, Pictures, Serial Number Guides, Installation Manuals, OpManuals, Parts Schematics, Parts Bulletins, Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, Service Bulletins, and Recalls. And have made all viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
    • Acquired over 1,200 books and magazine back issues in our academy library and so far have made over 700 viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
    • Published over 500 DIY How-To articles about boat design, construction, inspection, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair. We are working hard to do more.

    We are currently formatting and polishing the Anchors Aweigh Academy online and hands-on courses. The Marine Surveying course has proven to be excellent for both the beginner and the seasoned surveyor, and especially helpful to the Do-It-Yourselfer.

    FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 10,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I'm surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member's library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I'm thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work."

    FROM Huey: "I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 50,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 10,000 articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them?"

    FROM Dewey: "Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server on October 15, 2018 because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially."

    FROM Louie: "I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members' Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy's magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the "Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert's answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only $25. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle."

    FROM Scrooge: "You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they're adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat. And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I'd lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug."

    FROM Daisy: "I'm just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine."

    FROM Editor: "For those of you that have stayed with us this far, Thanks. You inspire us to keep working on this labor of love. We know that we have a lot more to do. Ultimately, we hope that we can help you enjoy the wonder filled world of boating as much as we do. We are all waiting to see what you have to say about this webpage article. And we assure you, your corrections, updates, additions and suggestions are welcomed. Let's work together on this.
